Come get in on the fishing action before you have to brace for the frigid weather next week! Thursday, Friday, and Saturday will be good fishing days. The water levels are rising over night tonight and will make for a few days of good fishing.

Mr. Kelly, Mr. John, Mr. Danny and Mr. Paul (The Sheep Head Regulars) started the day by limiting on redfish in less than an hour today. They also caught 50+ sheep head about 8 feet deep, by the rigs, in Stone Island. All were caught on live shrimp and dead bait from Sweetwater Marina.

Saturday we had reports from anglers of speckle trout in Lake John and Four Horse, so get out there before it gets too cold.

And for all you duck hunters, time is coming to an end. Better hurry up and get on down here. Saturday is your deadline. 😉👍

Don’t forget we have live beautiful shrimp! 🦐
Don’t miss out on the dead bait sale we have going on this weekend!!

We can’t wait to see ya’ll!!

Carley and Trey launched from Sweetwater Marina this morning and limited out on redfish, 🎣 had the largest catfish this month so far at 30 inches long and 2 green trout all caught in Oak River before noon. Carley caught the Redfish for his dad (Mr. Brent) one of Sweetwater‘s most loyal and faithful customers. 😉👍 Mr. Brent and Carley always get Tony to clean their 🐠 fish for them because Tony is the fastest and most professional fish 🐟 cleaner in Southeast Louisiana.

We have plenty beautiful live shrimp! 🦐

Bailey, Tyler, and Remi (yellow lab) limited out with ducks 🦆 this morning. Remi did a great job of retrieving all the kills. It looks like the next couple days are going to be optimal for duck hunters.

January 10 at 5:15pm

Despite the beautiful sunny 😎 day we are having at Sweetwater Marina, the
🌬wind seemed to be keeping the fisherman at bay. The northern winds aren’t helping the water level either. Looks like Friday & Sunday are going to be
the better days for fishing.💨
Capt. Jack had a charter today with Mr. Norman Elfer, Ms. Sandra Parker, Mr. Mike Serotta, and Davin Kieff. The winds were a bit challenging but they were a bunch of troopers and had a great time anyway. Sandra and Mike are from New England and flew down to come fishing with Norman. Friendly Super Bowl banter was had by all, because we already know the Saints are going to win 😉👍.
Point Feinne was the hot spot again today for Captain Jack. The morning started off a little slow, but they caught 16 beautiful redfish and a bass, and they had a few catch and release. 🎣
Don’t forget we have fresh beautiful live shrimp. 🦐 🍤
For all you duck hunters hears a few pictures to make you want to come to Delacroix. Farley and Randy went duck hunting and had a nice little kill, Lexi did a great job of bringing them in.
The next couple days are gonna be in your favor for duck hunters. Looking forward to seeing you at Sweetwater Marina. 🦆

Captain Jack had a great time fishing with his good buddy, C.T. Williams! They headed out of Sweetwater to go catch some reds around 8am. They caught their limit of beautiful redfish. They caught a bunch of throwbacks, as well. They fished around the Point Fienne area. They fished with popping corks, for the most part. However, they did catch a few on the bottom. The red-fishing seems to be REALLY, really good in Delacroix. Everyone seems to be catching reds, when they go out on their trips. As far as the trout, it seems that more and more are showing up in the interior of Delacroix. The only problem is that the water just doesn’t seem to stay clean. There is so much river water; it is kind of hard for it to filtrate out that quickly. Today, Captain Jack & Captain C.t. Williams caught 15 keeper reds, 4 keeper speckled trout, 1 keeper bass and 2 keeper black drum, also around 20 throwback drum and tons of throwback reds. Captain Jack is looking forward to watching C.T. Williams & himself tomorrow night, on Fox8 news. It will probably air sometime around 9-10pm. Make sure you watch Captain Jack & Captain C.T. Williams catch tons of fish tomorrow night! Also, a few other anglers came in with some good reports. A couple of them had limits of reds. One group had 20 or so trout. We have plenty of beautiful, live shrimp for all of our great customers! The weather may be kind of windy for Wednesday and Thursday, but it should warm back up by Friday. The wind issue doesn’t seem to matter for the reds, but it does suck to fish in the wind.

In more news, we do have some boat sheds available. If you are interested or need more info, please call Kelly at 504-342-2368 Monday- Friday from 9am-5pm.

If you need lodging, we do have some beautiful lodges, looking out at the beautiful Delacroix water. We are located in the most convenient location, which is right across from our marina. Stay with us and launch free! Call and book with Kelly..you won’t be disappointed.

Want to come fishing and don’t have a boat? Want to go fishing and not have to worry about where to go, getting stuck or having to load the boat? Want to go fishing with your kids or people that don’t fish much, but don’t want to worry about untangling lines, showing them how to cast and helping them do everything on board? If that is the case, Captain Jack is your man! He will have you, your family, kids, everyone laughing all day. He has a great personality. He is wonderful with any age group.

The first weekend of the New Year is upon us. Ya’ll coming fishing? We’d love to have you!!
Capt. Jack braved the winds today and took his dad, Big Jack, along with an old friend Mr. Terry and his buddy, Butch fishing today in Oak River. Winds were ruff, and not for the faint of heart, but they had a great time catching 5 Redfish and a freshwater Cat. They threw back more than they kept. Capt. Jack’s dad referred to as “Smiling Jack” and Mr. Terry have been friends for over 50 years. They piloted helicopters together in the Army during the Vietnam War. Catching up was the big part of today’s fishing trip. Mr Terry and Butch drove in from Tennessee last night to come stay at Sweetwater Marina. We hope they enjoy their stay as much as we love having them!
The duck hunters were killing the ducks today. We had several reports of good kills today.

January 04 at 5:08pm

Hope you had a great New Year, and we know fishing more in the new year is part of your resolutions, so here is something to look forward to this weekend. This weekend is going to be the start of a beautiful week. The weather is going to be perfect for fishing. It’s going to be sunny and the tides are going to be perfect for fishing in Delacroix.
Capt. Jack had a charter today with Mr. Bill, Christin and Collene from Seatow. They caught their limit of redfish and had a great time celebrating Mr. Bills birthday, he is making 83 years young this week. They fished around Shrimp Lagoon & Shell Lake. The grass mats are the secret to catching the best beautiful redfish. The New Year is starting off right.
Looking forward to seeing you here at Sweetwater Marina. We have plenty fresh live beautiful shrimp. Bait shop is open daily from 5 am till 5 pm. We have lodging available.

Sadly, this is our last post til next year...because... ☹️

Tomorrow is 2019!!!!! Goodbye, 2018..you’ve been good..but we are hoping for a fish filled, SPECK-tabular 2019! 😂🤪

Happy New Years from Sweetwater & crew! Yesterday, Captain Jack took out his good friend Jonathon and his son! They had a great day, and they limited out on reds. Captain Jack says the amount of redfish in the marsh of Delacroix is crazy. Yesterday, the fog didn’t lift until around 2pm..which sucked! However, the fishing was still great. If you get an opportunity tomorrow, we did hear some speckled trout reports from the inside of Delacroix. On the Delacroix side of Bayou Terre aux Boeufs in Lake John, there are speckled trout. One group had 11 and another group had 33. The second group of 2 were fishing by Shell Lake. Which doesn’t sound like a lot, but it is something. The group that had 33 trout said a few days prior they fished in Little Lake..and had 47 speckled trout. The water is beautiful, and it came up nicely. It is real clear, in most spots..clear enough to catch speckled trout. So, like we said...if you get an opportunity tomorrow, come on down..the water has cleared up and warmed up. I would try Fourhorse or Lake Amadee...now that the water has warmed and cleared up...it should be pretty good fishing. Come give it a try. Again, happy New Years! We wish you all the best in 2019, and we hope to see you here at Sweetwater Marina! Pictures are from yesterday.

First off, we would like to wish happy holidays to all of our great customers. Today, at Sweetwater, the action was pretty impressive with the redfish. Everybody caught reds today, which doesn’t surprise us. Most of the regulars caught tons of reds. The good news is tomorrow is going to be an absolutely beautiful day for fishing. It will probably be one of the prettiest, in a while. For everyone coming tomorrow, the water was low this morning...but it came up a foot, since..now, it may still be a foot below normal. Wish I had more to write about specks. However, we have 3 tanks full of beautiful, live shrimp. If you get a chance, make a quick trip! Take the kids out to catch some dinner to eat, while watching the Saints! By the way...With the water being low, Fourhorse was on fire (on the North bank). Most of the reports came from there today. We are sure there are reds biting, in all the same spots we have been posting. With the water coming up tomorrow, they should definitely bite. As we are writing this, Captain Jack just spotted a 6 point standing next to the road right before you get on the Twin Span...and he made me insert that into this post! However, we hope to see you guys before Santa comes and after! Merry Christmas and Happy New Years to all!!! Remember...Come see us at Sweetwater, the marina that loves their customers! ❤️🎅🏼🎄

December 22, 2018 at 5:13pm

The holiday season is here. With all the vacation time, come visit us here at Sweetwater for some fishing. The weather will be nice this weekend. Get out of the malls and get out on the water for some relaxation, before the big guy gets here (a.k.a santa).

Capt. Jack went fishing this week with his good
buddy Dennis. They had a great time catching their limit of Redfish, and countless amounts of reds were thrown back. The hot spots were Shrimp Lagoon, The Easter end
of Petite Lake, and Shell Lake. Redfish were everywhere. The interior waters of Delacroix are full of beautiful Redfish. If you can’t catch a Redfish, it’s because you don’t have your
pole in the water.

We’ve had some anglers come in with reports of decent amounts of trout last week. Captain Jack says, “When the water temperature rises, the wind is East,Southeast and the water is a little above normal, it seems the trout, that they
have on the inside, really start to bite.” The Mouth of Alligator Pass by Little Lake is another prime fishing spot for trout.

We are looking forward to seeing you here at Sweetwater Marina. We have plenty fresh, live, beautiful shrimp. The bait shop is open daily from 5 am till 5 pm. We have lodging available. Call Kelly to book a Charter with Capt. Jack.
504-342-2368 or for more information. Office hours are Monday-Friday from 9 am till 5 pm! Thanks in advance!

Today turned out to be a great day at Sweetwater Marina! Especially for the guys who caught 78 trout and 1 bass. We also had anglers who brought in 67 sheep head and their 4 man limit of redfish. Mr. Antoine, Antonio, Antonio Jr., Larry, and “The game warden” (not pictured) were proud of their 78 trout and 1 bass they caught around Four Horse and Lake Campo. They have been faithful customers since Sweetwater began. Mr. Jim, Paul, Kelly, and Danny went to Stone Island today for their 67 Sheep head and 4 man limit redfish. They said it was a lot of fun and hard work, and they know they are going to feel it tomorrow but it was worth every cast. Unfortunately the weather is not shaping up for good fishing tomorrow but it’s going to follow with a warm up and should be beautiful by next week!! Sweetwater Marina’s loyal customers swear by Nicole’s “Magic bait” they say her touching the live shrimp, helps them to limit out on redfish every time

December 13, 2018 at 9:36am

Capt Jack’s charter with his dad (Big Jack) and Mr. Carl was very exciting. They caught their limit of redfish and a bass. The trio went to Shell Lake and Shrimp Lagoon for their catch of the day.
We had a few anglers come in with reports of trout in Alligator Pass, Little Lake and Bay Andrew. They said the diversion has ended and the water is clearer and saltier. This makes for great trout fishing here in Delacroix. So to answer your question, “Are the trout moving in???”..... That’s a definite YES!!
Fresh live shrimp available.

Capt Jack’s charter with Mr. Pat Beck and friends was a bit challenging at first, with the strong winds this morning, meaning trout fishing wasn’t going to happen today. So they went on the Redfish hunt and that turned out to be a great success. They limited out and even threw back over 20 Redfish. In the end they brought in 22 Redfish, from around Shell Lake. They also caught 8 bass, 3 fresh water catfish, and a sheep head.

Tomorrow Capt. Jack will be fishing with Capt. CT Williams, which will air Thursday night on the “Fish and Game Report”.

Capt. Jody Stephens, Hank Mann and the Lake Oconee crew from Georgia did have success with the trout today. They had over 40 from the Lake Amadee area by the twin pipeline. We will be looking forward to seeing the guys again next year. They enjoyed lodging and launching from Sweetwater Marina for the last week.

We were also happy to host Steven and Hai on their 8th annual fishing trip at Sweetwater Marina. They said it gets bigger and better every year they come. All the guys had a great time and couldn’t wait to share some of their pictures with us.

We had another angler who limited out on Bull reds in Lake Callibas, he and his wife and son said the wind was a little strong but they enjoyed they family day out.

December 04, 2018 at 9:38am

Capt Jack said it wasn’t easy but they had a great time on his charter today. Mr. Ron, James and Tony had to go searching, but they ended up in the same place as yesterday to bring in the catch of the day. Lake Amadee side of Bayou Terre Aux Boeufs. 15 trout, 20 Redfish, and 2 Bass were caught on the Delacroix side of Bayou Terre Aux Boeufs.

The catch of the day goes to the Georgia fellas who brought in a Redfish over 36 inches long!

We had a few regular customers share a few photos of their catch. We couldn’t resist showing you of all the different catches of the day.

Sweetwater loves the awesome costumers we have.

We have fresh beautiful live shrimp!

Come visit us at Sweetwater Marina!

December 04, 2018 at 9:37am

Today was captain Jacks first trip this winter with his dad and Chef Richie (our old food trailer cook). They went scouting for trout and ended up catching some really big ones! They found some clean water, and that’s where they found the big trout. Captain Jack caught the biggest trout he’s caught in 2 and a half years. It was 25.25 inches long. We have been hearing some great reports coming out of Fourhorse. There are a lot of reds and trout on the South shore of Fourhorse Lake. If I were going trout fishing, I would concentrate in Lake Robin and Lake Amadee. If I were going redfishing,I would go anywhere I want to go. They have been cleaning reds since 10am today. So..when you get a chance, come on down. The weather is looking beautiful for tomorrow. We have beautiful live shrimp. Nicole just picked up a load of shrimp. All that being said..we can’t wait to see ya here at Sweetwater Marina.

Capt. Jack had a lot of success with red fish on his charters yesterday & today. “Dr. George” (Capt. Jacks personal hook extractor) and guest caught 25 reds, in the Lake Batola area, then went trout fishing in Lake Amadee and got 26 trout. With the weather conditions today, they only wanted to fish for reds and they limited out.

Redfish are everywhere in the interior marshes of Delacroix. We’ve been hearing great reports of red fish in Grand Lake. Four Horse seems to be the place to fish on the south bank, for speckle trout mixed with a lot of nice red fish.

Over all the trout are showing up in Delacroix, but we are having color issues with dirty water in the great trout fishing areas. The water needs to clear up, it’s too fresh, and the dredging of the pipeline seems to be an issue also.

Weather is looking better, and the winds are laying down. It should be great fishing for the Thanksgiving holidays.

Come visit us at Sweetwater Marina.

We will have plenty Fresh Live Beautiful Shrimp.

There was some great fishing today at the marina. Mostly all redfish. The trout reports haven’t been that great lately, however today they got a bit better. One group was fishing in Round Lake and caught 30. Lake Amadee and Lake Robin seem to be action packed. On Captain Jacks charter today, they caught their limit of reds..then, they caught a BUNCH more that they threw back. We don’t know how many were thrown back..it’s crazy how many reds there are. The water is clean in Lake Batola, and the redfish action is pretty high in that area. It is ashame that we aren’t catching the number of trout we normally catch this time of the year. That would be due to the Mardi Gras pass and all the fresh water coming through. We won’t get onto that subject again. We are expecting even better reports tomorrow..for trout. The weather will be great tomorrow, light winds, good temperature and the water has already warmed up a bit. If you are a trout fisherman, tomorrow is looking good. Also, they are definitely doing work in the Twin pipeline. The pipeline has floated up in several places in the pipeline canal, so they are dredging underneath the pipeline, resinking the pipeline and then putting mud on top of the pipeline. They are almost finished. They are almost all the way past Lake John. Once they get finished with that mess, the water should clear up beautifully. Then, you all can get back in your fav fishing spot here in Delacroix. If you are going trout fishing tomorrow, head towards Round Lake, Lake Amadee and Lake Robin..those waters seem to have a few more fish. As far as live shrimp, we ended up getting a delivery this morning. We still had a few people that didn’t get to get live shrimp. We are very sorry to those customers. Nicole is on her way to pick up a load! We will have plenty for tomorrow.

All that being said..
We can’t wait to see ya here at Sweetwater Marina, the marina that loves their customers!

Once again, some great fishing down here in Delacroix! Captain Jack went out on a charter, again, today! He took out Mrs. Shannon & Mrs. Melinda. They had a blast reeling in the reds. They went fishing from spot to spot from around 8am till 11am. It took a bit for the fish to start biting. When they hit their third spot, the reds were on fire! However, Captain Jack told them some good advice...”it wasn’t the spot..it was just when the fish decided they were going to bite.” To prove himself and betting the two gals..they went back to their original spot, and the fish were biting! His theory proved correct. Obviously, we aren’t surprised. Captain Jack knows what he is doing, when it comes to fishing!

We’ve heard some crazy news today. A customer came in and said it looked like they were taking out the center portion of the Twin pipeline (dredging) with heavy equipment. He said the water was muddy all around there. We haven’t heard that from anyone else. Captain Jack has not been fishing that way, so we don’t know how true this is.

Captain Jack wants to say “what a shame..all this fresh water coming through the Mardi Gras pass. The river is 12.2 ft tall. It has been coming through all summer long and now all fall. It’s just destroying the saltwater estuary. It is destroying all fishing in Delacroix. The real sad thing is it is destroying trout populations! Not only trout..Crabbers are suffering, fisherman are suffering and shrimpers are suffering. Someone put an end to this! It’s so sad riding down Oak river..marsh that used to be 4-5 ft tall..now 1.5ft tall with little yellow flowers growing on vines(sure there is a name for it..that we don’t know) smothering the life out of our Marsh because of all this fresh water. This will only result in major coastal erosion problems in the very near future! We need to use the marsh land we have left to create new marsh...take sediment from the river, pumping it through pipelines up to the existing marsh that is left and rebuild from there...Instead of wiping what we have left now off the face of the earth..and then trying to create new land with sediment from the river from these new diversion projects..which will take years upon years..my children and yours will not see this land built..I guess I’m just venting. It’s just truly sad. It doesn’t matter what any of us say..the government is going to do what they want to do. It just sucks that us sportsman’s that enjoy our great outdoors and/or make a living off of it..just have to watch it go away so rapidly..it’s scary! I hate writing things like this. I just hope someone reads it that can do something about it and helps us out..we matter too!”

IMPORTANT-READ THIS IF NOTHING ELSE:
We have some bad news for our customers. Our shrimp supplier skipped out on us today. That being said..we will have limited live shrimp tomorrow. We advise you to stop and pick some up on the way. We tried buying some shrimp from places around, and they all said they have limited live shrimp for themselves. We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause some of our customers. We try our very best to have it all for you guys, but not everyone is 100 percent 100 percent of the time. We are still trying to get in contact with our shrimp man and hope to get some live shrimp sometime tomorrow. We do have SOME shrimp. We are going to try to be fair with everyone and spread the shrimp among our customers. When we run out, there is nothing we can do. We are very sorry.

One last tip:
As far as speckled trout, no large number can in today. I would advise you, if you are going trout fishing tomorrow, to try lake Amadee and Lake Robin areas.

Remember, can’t wait to see ya here at Sweetwater Marina!

Phenomenal red fishing today, despite the frigid cold 33 degree weather! Captain Jack went out this morning with his charter, and they caught their limit! Then, he went back out for Captain Chris with a different group of guys in a spur of the moment trip, and they caught their limit again! Both groups caught plenty of extras that they threw back! Tomorrow is looking like it’s going to be a great day for fishing. The winds are looking light..around 5-10 mph. If you are coming trout fishing, I would advise coming after 9am. The water will warm up a bit and clear up. So, the trout fishing should be great mid day. This weekend is looking awesome, as well. It’s supposed to be sunny, pretty and a lot warmer. The water chilled down with this last front and probably pushed trout deeper into the interior of Delacroix, which should make for some awesome fishing! If you get an opportunity to come, come on down! We will write another fishing report tomorrow, after Captain Jack gets back in from his charter! We have plenty of live shrimp for tomorrow and the weekend! Nicole is on her way to pick up a load, as we speak! Stay tuned for tomorrow nights report. We will update you on hotspots! Some hotspots for speckled trout, prior to the cold front, was Fourhorse Lake, Round Lake, Lake Campo, Potto Cabalo, Bay Shallow and heard some out of Lake John. They were catching LOTS of trout on the other side of Bayou Terre Aux Boeufs..Lake Amadee, Lake Robin..etc. all the areas mentioned should be good fishing tomorrow. See you tomorrow after 9am! Pictures are from Captain Jacks charters today!

It's going to be hard to fish a place to tick in out of the wind this Saturday, maybe a few little spots directly across from the marina where you might be able to get out of the wind. And we should have live shrimp.

We are very sorry you didn't enjoy your experience staying with us at Sweetater Marina. We value all of our customers and welcome their feedback. To that end Capt. Jack spent some time today going through the towels and checking the lights in the rooms to see if they need to be changed or could have higher watt bulbs in them and just generally checking all the rooms. We will also be making sure all rooms have an extra set of sheets, a blanket and a pillow in the drawers under the bunk beds. As for being pricey, we feel that our prices on shrimp and gas are competitive with other Marina's in the area and are more than fair. And we know it's a hike up the stairs, but since we were built after Katrina we had no choice. However, we do take issue with your claim that there was no sofa sleeper in your room. Rooms 2-5, we believe you were in room 5, absolutely all have a full size sofa sleeper (although Capt. Jack recommends just sleeping on ythe sofa though because the sofa bed is not very comfortable). Again, we appreciate your business and the feedback and are changing some things because of it and hope you will give us another try next time you are in Delacroix.

we would love to see you tomorrow morning at Sweetwater Marina. Capt. Jack will not be there until a little later tomorrow, but just ask for Mr. Ronnie. He will be able to point you in the right direction and put you on the fish. Hopefully Capt. Jack will be there when you get back. You picked a good time for your 1st Delacroix fishing trip. The fishing has been great this year. Good luck.

We are very sorry about your experience. Having all been in similar situations we would hope that rules would be bent and common sense employed. We also know our young staff understands how important customer service is to us at Sweetwater and we see them go above and beyond on a daily basis to make sure anyone launching at Sweetwater has a great experience. Capt. Jack has already made some phone calls and dscussed how to better handle this type of situattion in the future. As always, we appreciate any input from our customers, good and bad.

A comment titled: Re: stranded on the water in response to a report titled: stranded on the water

Capt.Jack just read this post and is very sorry that you got stuck and we were unable to help, but to be fair, Capt. Jack always goes the extra mile not only for his customers, but anyone who needs help. Just a couple of weeks ago he purchased bamboo, then in addition to the $ spent on the bamboo, spent an entire day with one of his employees to mark the channel to help keep folks from getting stuck. On one Saturday last month we had 5 people call who were stuck and wanted to get towed in. In almost all cases an airboat was needed, Jack couldn't get to them even if he had been here. That day and on many other days we spend countless time on the phone with the St. Bernard Sheriff, Coast Guard and Sea Tow. We made sure everyone made it in even though Jack couldn't help them himself. And please keep in mind that Capt. Jack is not always here. Running a Marina entails much more than sitting in the bait shop helping launch boats. We appreciate everyone who defended Sweetwater And Capt. Jack. We love our customers, ya'll are great. We are also in full agreement about Sea Tow. BECOME A MEMBER. We are also truly sorry for this anglers experience, while we try to make everyone's experience down here in Delacroix a good one (even if you don't launch here), unfortunately you can't please everyone. That goes for any business and life in general.

A comment titled: Captain Jack - Sweetwater Marina in response to a report titled: !!!!BEWARE OF SERINGE'S LAUNCH!!!!!

Capt. Jack doesn't have a feud with anyone and has always been willing to work with and be helpful to anyone and everyone he meets. Those of you who are regulars at Sweetwater and have met Jack know this already. He is working very hard to get his shrimp boat up and running and to get fuel put in to make his business better, not to put anyone out of business. Once he has live bait and fuel on a regular basis it will be available to anyone, no matter where they launch. His goal is not and has never been to put anyone out of business. Anyone who fishes Delacroix regularly knows there is plenty of business to go around.

Thanks Spec hound. Captain Jack couldn't get them today though. He went out with Captain C.T. for a fish and game report. They tried for trout, on top and bottom, they did not bite today. He said they caught a few here and there. They limited out on Reds in Oak River. Reds arejust as good as tey have been.

Unfortunately we will be out of live shrimp this weekend. Captain Jack suggests getting your shrimp at Gulf Outlet Marina or Bait Inc. before you head out here to Delacroix.
